Donate Using Last Will And Testament - Leave A Legacy

Charitable Bequests

A charitable bequest is simply a distribution from your estate to a charitable organization through your last will and testament. There are different kinds of bequests. For each, you must use very specific language to indicate the precise direction of your assets, and to successfully carry out your final wishes. In any charitable bequest, be sure to name the recipient accurately. A bequest to The Cancer Society might go to national headquarters, when you meant it to go to the affiliate in your community.
last will and testimate

Do you have an estate?

Your estate is the sum of your assets, including property you own, insurance policies, retirement accounts, cash on hand, etc. Wealthy people may have very large estates, but even people who aren't wealthy often have the resources to make a charitable bequest. If every adult in America made a will and included a bequest of just $100, billions of dollars would flow to charitable causes every year.

Below, we have listed some of the more common kinds of bequests, and some bequest language. We always recommend that you carefully review the terms of your will with a professional trained in handling trusts and estates.

General Bequests are legacies left to certain people or causes that come from the general value of the estate, and are made by designating a specific dollar amount, a particular asset or a fixed percentage of your estate to the cause of your choice.

General bequest language:
"I give, devise, and bequeath to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, the sum of $________(or a description of the specific asset), for the benefit of VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION and its general purposes."

Specific Bequests are made when a particular item or property is bequeathed for a designated purpose. (i.e., instruments bequeathed to the local school district for use in music education; dollar funds to be used in the operation of a school or church.)

Specific bequest language:
"I give, devise, and bequeath to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, the sum of $_______ (or a description of a specific asset), for the benefit of VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION to be used for the following purpose: FULFILL HERO'S WISHES. If at any time in the judgment of the trustees of VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION it is impossible or impracticable to carry out exactly the designated purpose, they shall determine an alternative purpose closest to the designated purpose."

Residuary Bequests are made when you intend to leave the residue portion of your assets after other terms of the will have been satisfied.

Residuary bequest language:
"All the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, I give to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, for its general purposes."

Contingency Bequests allow you to leave a portion of your estate to a particular charity if your named beneficiary does not survive you.

Contingency bequest language:
"I devise and bequeath the residue of the property, real and personal and wherever situated, owned by me at my death, to (name of beneficiary), if (she/he) survives me. If (name of beneficiary) does not survive me, I devise and bequeath my residuary estate to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, for its general purposes."

Without a will, there is no mechanism in place to make a bequest, so here are the steps you should take to make sure your wishes are granted.

  • Make a list of organizations or causes that you would like to support.
  • Make a detailed list of your assets (financial, real estate, vehicles, jewelry, collectibles, musical instruments, etc.)
  • Set up an appointment with your financial analyst or attorney, or planned giving officer at the organization you intend to support. These professionals will help sensitively guide you through the process.

Family Walt Disney World Vacation
I'm Clayton, and in the picture are my wife and my 1-year-old daughter (not pictured our three fur animals)! I am currently deployed, and we want a vacation to Walt Disney World upon my return! My daughter will be 2 soon, and she already loves everything Disney. My wife was classified as an essential medical employee, so we have had a long couple of years between COVID-19, pregnancy, and this deployment. We hope to finally wind down for a bit and enjoy some quality time together as partners and parents. We greatly appreciate every one of you taking the time to read this, and thank you so much for everything in advance!

Post-deployment Broadway show Sweeney Todd
My Name is Terry. For my 10th wedding anniversary, I promised my wife we’d go somewhere amazing. We booked flights and a cruise to Alaska. 5 days before the scheduled cruise, I received noticed I had to go to a mandatory training and then would be deployed on an extended deployment. We had to cancel our anniversary trip and I had to leave her to manage our home like a rock star with 3 kids by herself. One of our children has moderately severe autism and the other two are two years old and one year old, so it’s certainly a lot of responsibility on her shoulders. Here it is, almost a year later from our cruise cancellation and my wife discovered that two of her favorite things are happening in NYC. Josh Groban is playing in Sweeney Todd on Broadway. She loves his music and Sweeney Todd is OUR favorite musical. I’d love to be able to get away with her and take her to New York City for a few days to celebrate surviving deployment and our 10th (make that 11th) Anniversary.

Nutcracker Tickets
Hi, My name is Brinley. I am 19 y/o and currently active duty Army. I have always wanted to see the Nutcracker on Christmas Eve with my boyfriend but have always either not been able to afford tickets or not been able to get tickets before they sold out. I really hope to be able to surprise him this year as we won’t be able to go home and see his family for Christmas due to having to save money to move and for me to attend law school next year.

Tool fan
Hello, my name is Jason, I am a USMC infantry squad leader. I’m a huge fan of the band Tool and have been for 23 years. I have never gotten the chance to see them in concert and the tickets are too much for me to get one right now as I’m approaching bankruptcy. Cost of living and other financial hardships combined with the ridiculous cost of living in rural Washington. In 2009 I was deployed as a USMC infantry squad leader on my third deployment as part of the 2nd marine expeditionary battalion and the first boots on the ground in President Obamas 2009 surge to end the war. I was wounded in when my squad came under fire and were drawn into a complex ambush of machine guns and rpg fire. I died twice on my medevac and almost lost my arm and was put into a coma with multiple face and skull fractures and a degloving of my right and dominant arm. My wish is to attend the Tool concert at the Moda Center in Portland Oregon in October.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip
Hello, my name is Jeffrey, and I am currently deployed to the Middle East. I have a 3-year-old son who loves everything Disney and an almost 9-month-old daughter, born a month before I left, but is the happiest little girl in the world. Since this is my first deployment, the whole family has had some major life transitions and stresses simultaneously. We planned on taking the kids to Disney World for my son’s 4th birthday after I got home, but budgeting while gone and trying to plan a fun vacation for the family has been difficult. After hearing about your program, being accepted by the Hero’s Wish program would be a blessing. I appreciate what you’re doing for our service members and would love the opportunity to use your services to bring some happiness to my family. Thank you!

Surprise Family with Dream Disneyland Vacation!
Hi, my name is Charles, and I’m in the Air Force. My “Hero's Wish” is for Park Hopper and Genie+ passes for Disneyland and California Adventure Park. This past year has been tough on my family. My wife went through a very traumatic pregnancy and delivery with my son. Five days after his birth, I received a phone call saying I was deploying for the third time. The day I was supposed to leave the first time (it got postponed three times), my family and I had a car accident. Luckily, the kids were okay in the accident, but my wife and I still got treatment for our injuries. I still deployed when my son was a month old, and my wife was still not released to pick up more than my son’s weight (Even through the roughest times, she’s still the strongest person I know). I just returned from deployment in January, and my son Nikolaus is now 10 months old. It’s always been a dream of mine to take my kids to Disney. Especially since my 4 and 6-year-old daughters, Audrey and Gwendolyn, are obsessed with Disney (not to mention my wife is too). After everything that has happened, I would love to be able to surprise my family with a trip to Disneyland and California Adventure Park in Anaheim, California. I respectfully request help with (4) four-day park hopper passes plus services. It would be my kid's first time going, and I know it is a HUGE dream of theirs. I have missed many birthdays, firsts, and events in the past six years and would love to be able to share this memory with them. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
